To receive this award, students must be nominated by their teacher, answer several essay questions, audition and make it into their respective All-State Honor Choir/Band/Orchestra, and finally audition and make Excellent or Superior ratings in solos or ensemble in their respective instrument.

All of these students have received Superior ratings in their solos or ensembles.
